On August 31st Heart returns with an album of nine new songs and one oldie seeing the light of day once again. Red Velvet Car sees the Sisters Wilson focusing strongly on vocal chops and acoustic guitars, even though some of the best moments are when they plug in the electrics. “WTF” and “Death Valley” are two great rocking tracks that show with Heart could do if they so chose.
However, this is a celebration of the acoustic. The album starts off with one of the strongest songs in “There You Go.” Other high points are a thirteen-year-old track from the band’s Lovemonger days titled “Sand.” The title track is also very well written and will be a fan favorite.
